An NYU student named Trevor Hill tried to get House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Cali.) to accept some populist socialist economic positions to appeal to millennials, but she wouldn’t have it.
During a town hall on CNN with Jake Tapper on Tuesday, Pelosi shut down any notion that the Democratic Party was socialist.
“I thank you for your question, but I have to say we’re capitalists,” Pelosi said to the NYU student. “That’s just the way it is.”
She went on to say that there were issues with income inequality and defended the social safety net, but made it clear the Democratic Party supported capitalism.
